Northern Polytunnels have recently teamed up with the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens to support the nation’s community growers and agricultural projects by offering an exclusive discount on our Easy-Build polytunnel range. 

The Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens (FCFCG) is a leading UK charity dedicated to supporting city farms, community gardens and other green spaces. For projects like these, the Federation provides access to practical support, networking and funding streams.

The 10% discount, which is only available to FCFCG members, will mean even better value for money on our polytunnel range and give remarkable community projects up and down the country the opportunity to achieve more, work better and become more sustainable.

Community growing spaces such as city farms and gardens offer local people a tremendous array of benefits – from education programmes and play schemes to work and skills training – and we are proud to be supporting them and their communities in this way.

Danielle Palfreeman, our Marketing Manager, says: “Working with FCFCG has been such a privilege. We started our business in 1969 with the idea that everyone should have access to sustainable farming all year round".

"Community gardening and urban farming is a fantastic way to bring local communities together, giving people opportunities and skills, educating young people about where their food comes from and in some projects we have worked with, filling local food banks". 

"In urban environments gardening is even more important. With fewer gardens and less access to green spaces, the sense of achievement, pride and wellbeing growing your own food can bring is priceless.”

Chris Blyth, Director of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens added: "We're really happy to team up with Northern Polytunnels on this exclusive discount deal for our members".

"These groups are often run by volunteers on an extremely tight budget and grant funding doesn't always cover the costs of structures like this, so working with businesses to help groups in this way is key part of our work".

"What deals like this mean is that community growing groups across the UK have a better chance of a more sustainable financial future - and that can only be good for the communities they serve."

Simplicity and ease are the driving forces behind our Easy-Build design and we feel that it offers the perfect polytunnel solution for community growers. Indeed, no specialist tools or skills are required. Everything simply slots or bolts together, making it quick and easy to install.

Although we cannot offer these savings on our school polytunnel bundle or range of Easy-Build accessories, FCFCG members can take advantage of our discounted Easy-Build polytunnels by accessing their member login area
